MadLab in Salford

Wednesday, October 1st, 2014

Yep. It’s true. We’re opening up ANOTHER MADLAB! This time, in Salford, where we’ll be putting on lots of new events and projects, opening our doors to Salford-based community groups and offering out some beautiful hotdesking space.

We’re moving into an old bank on Chapel Street.

More precisely, this big white building below:

It’s an amazing building and comes with a huge hall that we’ll be using for events and meetups:

There’s also a basement downstairs that is home to our favourite bit - a massive vault!

If you’re in the Salford area and want to come check out the space, let us know.

Once we’re up and running we’ll be getting straight in to the usual MadLab activities so get in touch if you have an event you’d like to put on, want to start a community group or are interested in getting involved in any other way. We’d love to hear from you. office@madlab.org.uk

National Novel Writing Month is a fun, painstaking month of literary abandon. Participants across the world begin writing on November 1. The aim is to the write a 50,000 word (approx 175 pages) novel by 11:59:59pm on November 30.

NaNoWriMo is a novel writing program for all those who have considering writing a novel but have been discouraged by the time and effort involved. This month is focussed on getting words on paper, on getting that story onto the page. The words you write may not be award winning prose but at least your story will be told. The refinement and rewording can come later.

Whilst writing a novel might be an individual task, by no means will you be alone in your battle. You can draw comfort from the fact that alongside you is an enthusiastic and engaging group of other participants fighting the same fight, going through the same joys and sorrows towards that ultimate goal of a finished work of fiction. The charge is led by three NaNo-veterans known as the Municipal Liaisons who will be there to guide you through the month. They will also be writing their own novels alongside you!

Hot drinks are provided. You’re encouraged to bring food, treats, willing friends and whatever device you prefer to write on. Power points will be available. For further information about NaNoWriMo and the events happening in your region, see the links below:
